Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Superstar Allen Iverson showed up to face the Los Angeles Lakers -- for one half.

After going 7-of-14 and scoring 16 points in the first half, Iverson missed all 11 shots and was held scoreless in the second as the Lakers defeated the Philadelphia 76ers, 87-84, for their seventh straight victory.

"I just had a bad night, man," Iverson said. "Every time I have a bad game, it does mean the guy that is on me is doing something different. Just some nights, shots don't fall. I missed shots I usually make."

Philadelphia took an 81-76 lead on a dunk by Tyrone Hill with 4:12 left in the fourth quarter. But Los Angeles' top two scorers, Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant, combined for eight points in a 9-0 run. Bryant's running jumper with 1:28 remaining gave the Lakers an 85-81 lead.

Philadelphia's Eric Snow answered with a 3-pointer to cut the margin to 85-84 with 35 seconds to play.

Iverson's second-half woes continued when his shot was blocked by Bryant with 2.7 seconds left. Bryant was fouled by Iverson and sank both free throws with 1.7 seconds remaining.

"I just saw (Iverson) push the ball pretty hard and I knew he was going to try to get to the basket," Bryant said. "I just moved my puppies, that's all."

Iverson completed the forgettable 24-minute stretch as his potential tying 3-pointer was blocked by O'Neal as time expired.

"These guys depend on me to make things happen on the court," Iverson said. "I just wanted to make something of it after playing the way I did the whole half. It just wasn't going well for me. I never could get in the flow in the second half."

O'Neal, who is second in the NBA in scoring behind Iverson, had 22 points and 16 rebounds and tied a career high with nine assists. Bryant and Glen Rice each added 18 points for Los Angeles, which improved to 4-0 on a six-game road trip and 10-2 against Eastern Conference opponents.

"I know this conference better. Coming from this conference, that might help," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. "The other fact is that Shaq's a dominating force. There aren't the type of centers we face night in and night out in the West that he has to face in the East."

Los Angeles led 68-66 after three quarters, but Theo Ratliff, who scored 18 of his 20 points in the second half, had eight in an 11-4 run to open the final quarter. His 10-footer from the right side gave Philadelphia a 77-72 lead with 7:13 to play.

Iverson was 0-for-9 from the field in the fourth quarter, when Philadelphia shot 29 percent (7-of-24). The 76ers outrebounded Los Angeles, 51-39, but could not overcome 39 percent shooting (33-of-85).

"They just played defense pretty well and the referees never called the foul when we went to the goal," Philadelphia coach Larry Brown said of Iverson's second-half struggles. "Kobe is long and Allen wasn't catching and shooting very much. When he did drive, he never got a chance to go to the line. That's a bad combination."

Playing against Jackson, his former coach with the Chicago Bulls, Toni Kukoc had nine points and five rebounds off the bench in his second game for Philadelphia.

Bryant completed a three-point play with 4:19 left in the third quarter to give Los Angeles a 63-59 lead, but the 76ers went on a 7-0 run and Kukoc's 16-footer with 2:48 left made it 66-63.

The Lakers scored the final five points of the period as Robert Horry had a free throw and a basket.

The game was tied, 18-18, after one quarter, but the Lakers opened a six-point lead in the second as a 19-foot jumper by Bryant capped a 7-0 run with 7:10 remaining. A 3-pointer by Kukoc lifted Philadelphia into a 39-39 tie with 1:52 to play before halftime.

But Derek Fisher's 3-pointer with 3.7 seconds left enabled the Lakers to take a 48-44 lead at the break.
